Welcome back to the ENSPIRES podcast!

A lot has changed around here since my last episode in 2021 and things are better than ever, but there’s one question that’s been weighing on me as I’ve been getting back into the swing of things: why should I pursue a calling when I already have a career? That’s what we’re exploring in this episode.

I want this episode of the podcast to be a reminder that it’s okay to move on when your lifestyle or mentality is no longer working for you. You deserve to wake up with hope and excitement, not dread. If your career is bringing you more dread than hope, it might be time for you to listen to your calling.

“Your career is what you’re paid for. Your calling is what you’re made for.” - Steve Harvey

Topics covered in this episode include:

  • The difference between a career and a calling
  • Not allowing your career to hold you back from who you’re meant to be
  • How to break up with toxic mentalities


Don’t sacrifice your calling for your career when you can have both. Tune in to find out how.
